My delearship said that a passenger side front control arm bushing needs replaci on 2000 Subaru Outback

I can't find much information about this issue. They are asking for $242 to replace. My Subaru has 245,000 miles so replacing some part makes sense. Can anyone out there shed any light on this? Thanks, Barb

THE RUBBER BUSHING WEAR OUT AND MOST LIKELY DO NEED TO BE REPL. THIS IS NOT A BAD PRICE. DOES IT INCL ALIGNMENT?

No, the alignment is $90.00. Thanks for answering this. So, is the bushing a part of the supension?

yes it may be replacable in control arm or it may come only with the control arm. they are starting do sell the whole arm now instead of repl parts. its not a bad deal
